Bahai News -- Multi-religious educational tour October 24, 2002

Multi-religious educational tour

Join us for a unique educational tour visiting various community centers in Massachusetts and Maine. We will begin in the morning at the St. George Orthodox Church in West Roxbury, Mass., to explore the Arab-American community's history and contributions as well as the history of the church and its memorial library. Then shop at an Arabic/Middle Eastern store in the area for food and spices before we depart to Maine's Green Acre Bahai School to spend the rest of the day there.

This Bahai School is one of three major conference centers of the Bahai community in the United States. It is unique among Bahai conference centers in that it received a visit in 1912 from Abdulbaha, the son of the Prophet-Founder of the Bahai Faith. The campus is located along the banks of the picturesque Piscataqua River and is surrounded by lush forests and beautiful meadows. It is also known for its historic Sarah Farmer Inn and charming New England residences.

Time: 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM
